Leading off today:
I'll try to keep today's blog short so I can get out and mow the lawn, seal the driveway and wash the car.
Boys basketball: The rematch of the 2015 Section 3 Class D boys basketball final was all you could ask for from a late-December game and more. Senior Anthony Warcup scored 10 of his season-high 22 points in the fourth quarter and state-ranked No. 8 Oriskany remained unbeaten with a 63-57 win over the fourth-ranked Marauders on Tuesday.
New York Mills point guard Terry Nichols popped for 34 points, but Oriskany senior Ryan Schmadel produced 16 points and 16 rebounds, and Ricky Phelps added nine points and six assists.
Oriskany snapped New York Mills' 22-game league winning streak and beat its rival for the first time in eight tries.
"We did it as a team," Oriskany coach Chris Mahoney told the Times Telegram. "Every time they would make a little run, we came right back, and its not just Ryan Schmadel out there -- we've got a lot of guys who can do a lot of different things."
• Fairport won a much-anticipated interclass skirmish in Section 5, riding senior Matthew Keenan's 31 points to an 82-69 win over Greece Athena. Fairport is 10th in the state in Glass AA, and Athena is rated 11th in Class A.
Junior guard Dan Masino chipped in with 20 points and four assists for the winners. Athena senior Anthony Lamb finished with 24 points.
A full day at Cooperstown: Senior guard Liz Millea and her Cooperstown basketball teammates had a full day. Millea's day began with the funeral of an aunt who died last week. The day concluded with Millea finishing with 34 points in a 50-35 win over Milford.
In between, Cooperstown opened at No. 1 in the first state Class C rankings of the season and Millea became her program's career scoring leader.
She entered 22 points shy of Samantha Fox's record of 1,367 points from 2004-2008 and rattled off all the team's points in an opening 14-4 spurt vs. Milford.
"I've seen her play a few times and she's streaky, but when she gets it going, the lights are out," Milford coach Jim Weir told The Daily Star.
The win was the 20th in a row for Cooperstown.
More milestones: Erin Langworthy assured her place in Warrensburg basketball history with a 31-point effort to become the Burghers' all-time basketball scorer -- male or female.
Langworthy entered the 48-31 win over North Warren needing just four points to break the school record of 1,574 points by her great uncle, Terry Kollman, in 1974.
She passed her mother, 1988 Warrensburg grad Amy Monroe Langworthy (1,207 points), last season.
• Senior Connor McCart scored 46 points to lead Hoosick Falls to a 70-55 win over Granville, giving coach Mike Lilac Jr. his 300th boys basketball victory.
McCart added 16 rebounds.
"I've had a lot of help and I've been around a long time. You think back to the kids you've coached and how lucky you've been," Lilac told The Bennington Banner.
Deep end of the pool: Maine-Endwell junior Jordan Klym set a Section 4 diving record at Horseheads on Tuesday. His six-dive total of 362.25 off the 1-meter board broke the mark of 341.80 by Derek Linenbaugh of Susquehanna Valley in 2012.
Hockey: Mamaroneck is attracting notice after having moved up to NYSPHSAA Division I in the offseason. The very focused Tigers, ranked second in the state by the New York State Sportswriters Association, defeated No. 12 Clarkstown 3-0.
